Welcome to Post-18 Pathways
MV16 Careers Programme
Whether students are opting to go to university or considering a Higher or Degree Apprenticeship, post 18 advice and guidance at MV16 is plentiful. Careers guidance is provided by our experienced and dedicated careers team, tailored to the individual and meets each of the Gatsby Benchmarks.
We aim to provide excellent quality, neutral information and guidance to all of our students to allow us to provide them with the best possible foundations for their next steps after leaving MV16. Students have a close working relationship with our personal careers adviser who offers this high quality, impartial advice and guidance for continued studies and/ or chosen career paths.
Students benefit from extensive and experienced support with the UCAS process including preparation for Oxbridge, Russell Group universities and specialised courses such as Veterinary and Medicine. In addition, access to master classes through our partnership universities is promoted along with residential masterclasses such as Villiers Park, Cambridge University and Oxford University. Opportunities to attend open days and higher education fairs are actively promoted.
Careers guidance starts as early as the application process in Year 11. Through a series of assemblies, open events, taster days and where necessary, one to one interviews. Students are guided onto A level and selected BTEC courses which best suit their aspirations. MV16 liaise with local secondary schools to ensure students are aware of post 16 and post 18 pathways at the college.
All students and parents have access to the Unifrog platform, which helps students to compare every Post 18 opportunity available and current labour market data. With the help of MV16 staff, the Unifrog platform allows students to research and successfully apply for their chosen pathway . This website is a 'one-stop-shop' for destinations allowing students to explore how their interests will lead to different education and training opportunities.
